 Hello Friends! I am so happy that you stopped by! The inspiration for my layout was this cutey photo of my son in 1989 on his 8th birthday! Nick always would tell me he was going to make "WISHES" when he blew out his candles! Not just a WISH... but WISHES! So when I ran across this photo his closed eyes & little puffed up cheeks brought a smile to my face as I know he was making "WISHES"!

I used the yummy Creative Imaginations LooLah papers. I thought they were perfect for the picture! They also had a sticker that was great for those little details! I made the scalloped dies cut & will be posting a "how to" in a day or so. 

All edges were inked with 3 colors of Distress Ink- Faded Denim, Peeled Paint & Worn Lipstick. The little flowers are  K &Co... I wrapped wire around a little lollipop stem & attached the wire on back of flowers to make them a little "springy". They are much more dimensional than they are showing up in the photo.
The lettering is round sticker letter on punched circle card stock with a little retro flower attached to the back. I raised them with round chip to give the bottom of the layout some interest. The little lady bugs are Jolee's Boutique.
 I really enjoyed this layout! I think I was smiling the whole time! Nick just turned 31, but it seems like just yesterday I was taking this photo of him in his Care Bear jammies making Wishes!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! You guys are the best :)
